If you open a site you have a site with potential to succeed in the real world. That is just my personal opinion anyway but I do believe that all sites that come out have potential to succeed. I have seen people that flame other websites saying that they “suck” and they will never get anywhere and that is just absolutely wrong.
I have opened a forum over a year and a half ago known as Gamers Forum, which was frequently mentioned on this blog. I have had people tell me that it is too hard to manage a forum and that we will get no where, and I have proved all of them wrong, and they are no where to be seen to criticize my sites anymore.
If you open a site for the first time, don’t let anyone tell you that you or your site cannot succeed.
